Does the TagCloud group word stems together? Example: teach, teacher, teaching would all be considered the same as their stem (teach) is identical.

 

Is there an easy way to exclude non-important words (such as: a, an, the, etc.) outside of the WordsToExclude property? I don't want to have to define a list of these words if not absolutely necessary as I know I will miss a few.

 

Is there a way to apply a length restriction to the words to be weighted? I would like to avoid things like "no" and "go" from appearing in the TagCloud, and I know these sorts of words will make it through, even if the WordsToExclude property is extensive.

 

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hello Jeremy,

I am posting here the response from the support ticket on the matter:

The RadTagCloud control does not support grouping of similar words. The only options for sorting the items in a tag cloud that are currently available can be checked in the following demo: http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/tagcloud/examples/organizeitems/defaultvb.aspx

By default the tag cloud control has a list of short words to escape assigned to its WordsToExclude property. You can check it by getting the value of this property before setting it:
Dim wordsToExclude As String() = RadTagCloud1.WordsToExclude
If you want to keep this list and add to it just store its default value and extend the returned array of strings with the new words, then assign it to the property.
